PPI Claim1

Recently, payment Protection Insurance or PPI has been mis-sold often and people are finding it difficult to get their money back. Anyone who had taken a loan, mortgage or even a credit card were either forced to buy the PPI or sold to them without their knowledge.

The purpose of selling this insurance plan by the lenders was to assure the payment of monthly installment. If the borrower fails to make the payment of monthly installment, due to any unforeseen reason then the insurance company will be responsible to pay that installment.

However, this PPI plan was not compulsory for every borrower and in fact not all borrowers really needed this plan. However, lenders have mis sold this plan to their clients illegally and therefore the court has intervened and sorted out the cases, where this plan was clearly mis sold. Now, people are eligible to get back their premium.

After this ruling many PPI claims company have appeared in the market in order to help these victims of the scam to get back their premium money. They are also charging big service fee for getting their money back.

    The most ethical PPI company we’ve ever come across is Forbes Douglas.

    They don’t try and suggest it’s impossible to do a claim yourself, they just simply let you know it’s for those that don’t have the time!

    You can look on websites like ‘consumer action group’ which will show you all the problems people have during their claims – it’s not as straight forward as the banks make out. The banks are only saying it is easy because a firm like Forbes Douglas know how to make sure you get every penny back. Of course there are times when lenders are playing fairly, but there are plenty of occasions when they do it wrong and you or friends have lost out on thousands of pounds.
